Geomorph users,

We have uploaded version 2.1.6 of geomorph* to CRAN. The windows and mac binaries have been compiled and the tarball is available.

New Features:

  • New globalIntegration() function for evaluating integration vs. self-similarity of shape variation. This function implements the new method of Bookstein 2015 Integration, Disintegration, and Self-Similarity: Characterizing the Scales of Shape Variation in Landmark Data. Evolutionary Biology, doi: 10.1007/s11692-015-9317-8 (here).

  • The coordinates returned by digitize2d() are now unscaled, and in the *.tps file the scale is returned on the line SCALE=

Other Changes:

  • Phylogenetic simulation procedure in compare.evol.rates() generalized to use a single evolutionary rate matrix

  • The following functions are now defunct and replaced by advanced.procD.lm(): pairwiseD.test() and pairwise.slope().test

  • The following functions are now defunct and replaced by define.sliders(): define.sliders.2d() and define.sliders.3d()

  • The read.morphologika() can read files with missing data

  • Ability to not show plot added to physignal() and compare.evol.rates()
